New Link: Spartan And Amazon Warriors History And Re-Enactments

The blog is now linked to a new site called "Spartan And Amazon Warriors". Click this post's title to jump to the site. It's also found in the blog's "For More Info" link library. The site is rich in history about Ancient Greece and is owned by a re-enactment group. I'm hoping to see more Amazon photos and information as the site grows as it's a bit new right now. Please check it out and let me know what you think about it by commenting here.

SCA Swordfighting Re-enactment

This video clip is a good example of what the SCA (Society For Creative Anachronism) does during their fairs. Please click the title to jump to the link. This video clip has also been placed in my Video Library as "SCA Medieval Sword Fight: Man Vs. Woman".

The video takes place in Germany where a man and woman duel using rapiers. While the man has a small shield, the braver woman only wields her sword with much ferocity and skill. While I have a considerable amount of SCA artwork, this is my first video clip so I will try to obtain more.

New Women Warriors Video Clips

I just uploaded new video clips into the blog's "Video Library" (see my Table Of Contents" for the quick link to it). There, you'll find six exciting video clips from the following movies: "Barbarian Queen II", "War Goddess" (2 clips), and "Battle Of The Amazons" (2 clips).

Although many of you have already seen "Barbarian Queen II", for those who haven't, I think you will find this clip gripping.

The "War Goddess" clips contain some wickedly thrilling battle scenes of Amazons attacking a village. This movie is available for rent from Netflix.com or Blockbuster.com. I've never seen this movie before so I'm looking forward to my copy coming Tuesday.

The "Battle Of The Amazons" clips are the main battle scenes from this rare movie. They are quite entertaining, but the scenes featuring masked women are in fact played by men. Sadly, this movie is not available for rent. Amazon.com has this movie for sale at $175.00 US the last time I checked. I actually saw this movie when I was a kid.

Hope you enjoy these clips, and please, reply here with your comments. I'm working very hard to build a huge collection of women-warrior video clips, many hard-to-find.

"Last Glory Of Troy" Update

I got my copy of the "Last Glory Of Troy" DVD, which is a two-movie set called "The Gods Of War". This movie is a colorized version of "The Avenger". Sadly, the warrior-queen Camilla had only a small role in the movie. Her death scene, which I have in my "Video Library", is her finest moment. The pathetic scene in which she sword whacks a few Trojan warriors isn't worth ripping. With Trojan arrows flying towards her cavalry, all she's wearing is a short leather armour and she has no shield.

If you want to see a movie about the "Aenead", then this cinema offers you a glimpse, but corrupts the myth. And, the video and audio quality is poor.

February 09: Women Warriors Art & Video Uploads

As so many bloggers and visitors have linked to my blog via RSS feed, starting today I will post when I have new art, pictures, videos, or links to announce. Todays uploads include the regular monthly artworks in the "Rotating Gallery" plus four new additions into the "Permanent Gallery". In addition, there are many new vidclips in the "Video Library", including the hard-to-find "Barbarian Invasion" battle from "Hundra".

I would like to invite you to reply here with your comments or feedback. Thanks.

Unknown VidClip Identified

My thanks to ThroneOfFire who kindly identified the vidclip that I last posted. It's called the "La Leggenda di Enea" or the "Last Glory Of Troy" and also known as "The Avenger". Please click on this post's title to jump to the Internet Movie Database to learn more about this movie.

The movie is a classic Steve Reeves, Italian-made sword-and-sandle movie about the invasion of Etruscan Italy by the Trojan refugees led by Aeneas. One of the allies of Turnus, king of Etrusca, is the warrior-queen Camilla, who brought a small army of women to battle the invaders. The vidclip I found shows either the death of Camilla herself, although "The Illiad" shows her dying by a javelin, or one of her warrior women.

I'm going to try to obtain a DVD of this movie and rip some women-warrior battlscenes from it and upload them into my You Tube account. If any of you visitors has this DVD and would like to do the same, you'll have my thanks.

"Wolfy's Howl" Blog News

I recently switched from cable Net to DSL Net so I lost my access to my previous ISP's FTP server. Therefore, as my photo-stories and short-story libraries were hosted on the FTP server, I had to delete both libraries. I hope that most of you had a chance to read these stories. Sadly, I haven't found a way to put them back on the blog.

*** BIG PROBLEM:

One of my biggest problems with art collecting is authors not signing their work. While I sometimes use unsigned art, I also would like to give the artist credit. So, if anybody thinks they know the artist of any unknown picture here, please leave me a comment on any of my posts. Thanks.

Thanks to everybody for making the blog a success.

A Gladiatrix Speaks Out:

"[Men tell women it's not ladylike to wield a sword.] Well, ever the man in men! Let a woman know her place: let her milk and spin and sew and bake and bear children, not look upon her threshold or the command of her lord and master! Bah! I spit on you all!

There is no man alive who can face me with weapons and live, and before I die, I'll prove it to the world. Women! Cows! Slaves! Whimpering, cringing serfs, crouching to blows ...

Ha! You deny me a place among men? By God, I'll live as I please and die as God wills, but if I'm not fit to be a man's comrade, at least I'll be no man's mistress."
